The Poke Salat Festival is held throughout Historic Downtown Arab, Alabama. The Festival includes Artisan Avenue, which is an area dedicated to handcrafted items, civic group and commercial vendors, multiple areas of entertainment, interactive displays and demonstrations, a fun pet parade, a food court, Corn Hole Tournament, and more fun. The Chamber of Commerce hosts a Bluegrass Band Competition on Saturday with cash prizes for the top bands.
